says america has to grow up and get over its victorian kind of thinking about sex scandals but i honestly believe that. this is nothing but a giant love triangle. it is a classic case of a guy in power who is -- who is there for attractive -- who is therefore attractive to some women or some men. people in power celebrities are always surrounded by those who are sexually attracted to them and people in -- men -- particularly men in power love it. they love the attention and they easily fall for the temptation. it happens all the time. they love this. being the focus of so much adoring attention. they go out. petraeus, i'm sure not the first general. not the first politician, not the first man in power the first celebrity to have an affair. but for this to blow up into some national scandal or seen as some reason why petraeus has to resign, i still think is crazy. we have little insight into this from lieutenant colonel retired john neagle who is a buddy of petraeus talked to him and said petraeus was really, re

for america's interests in very difficult times. when the united nations is a place where we often face significant challenges. and i understand that there was a lot of concern and anger initially about benghazi and about what happened and about the differences and reports but as this has been peeled back and more and more of the details have come out as best as i can make sense of it, the persistent criticism of her is that she represented the administration, went on talking -- went on different talk shows and went different radio shows and presented it based on intelligence she was given. this is far from the first time that a secretary of state u.n. ambassador has been given bad intelligence and repeated it publicly and why that makes her somehow unfit to serve as secretary of state is beyond me. in my view, if there's some unhappiness about the incidence in benghazi, some deep concern about security, there ought to be a broad look into what happened. why four americans died. surprise. that's happening. there is a thoro
